4.01/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from the bottle into a snifter at around 45°F

Appearance: Pale amber color with a two finger off white/light beige head. A very good looking beer

Smell: Sweet, toasted, bready malts with undertones of citrus hops.

Taste: Same as smell. Wish there was a little more hops to balance out the malts

Mouthfeel: Light medium body; Smooth, dinkable, and refreshing

Overall: For me, this is one of those beers that I enjoyed more when I was first getting into crafts. Now it's too malty and not enough hops for my liking. More like an EPA. However, it's still tasty and easy to go down. Great Lakes is very reasonably priced in my area so that's what's going to keep me coming back to this beer.

Serving type: on-tap
